Knitting a cardigan in laceweight? I really thought I needed my head examined when I embarked on this one, and it was a labor of love. The yarn for this project was purchased at the first Stitches South I attended, and I had knit on this on and off for the past two years, so it was particularly sweet for me to cast off for this project on my first night at Stitches South 2011. I love the yarn (Ellen's Half-Pint Farm) and its great dye job! The pattern was easy and uncomplicated, which gives it two thumbs up in my book. My only complaint is that the sweater slides off my shoulders a bit too much for my liking. Not a problem when I wear it around the house, but I especially notice it if I'm wearing a purse over my shoulder or out and about. So I'll probably think twice about making a second Featherweight, or consider some serious modifications if I do.

I can't believe I haven't knit these uber-popular socks sooner! Now I see why they are soo popular--the pattern just flies off the needles, and is so well-written! These will finish up really fast, once I devote 100% of my knitting time to them!
